seek advice on offshore cruiser

Hello:

My family(wife,2 boys ages 7&3)are looking to liveaboard and cruise within the next year. We are currently "land dwellers" with
some previous sailing experience(before children). I would like recomendations on cruising catamarans---pre-owned. I have read
articles on Heavenly Twins, Catalacs & Prouts. What about other catamarans-Americat,
Endeavourcat,etc.? Any ideas? Our budget is
around $60,000--have to sell the house first! also, any thoughts on "cat-rigged" versus "sloop-rigged" catamarans?

Thanks!
